Throne for a Loss - S1-E4

Revealing mistake: After Rygel realizes that he can loosen the soil with the dumped gruel, it cuts to John and Aeryn as they approach the Tavlek camp, and when Aeryn tells John, "I am going to take out every last Tavlek. No survivors. No mercy. Now give me the oculars," John holds up the syringe (with Zhaan's sleep mist) that Aeryn had given him earlier, and we can see "DG-4" engraved on the side of the gun, revealing that the prop dept used the model DG-4 aluminum air blow dust gun to play the part of the syringe.
